Several industries, such as the food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and more, all need a magnetic separation process in place to avoid contamination. With that said, many organizations could largely improve their magnetic separation process simply by adding plate magnets in addition to their current magnet set up. People often ask how to know when to use plate magnets and by the end of this article, you’ll know a few signs that indicate you should incorporate plate magnets.

If You Have a Limited Budget

We understand that developing an excellent magnet set up is challenging and expensive for most organizations. However, if you’re working with a small budget, we’d suggest looking into plate magnets because they’re among the most affordable options. So, don’t think that a small budget means you can’t afford quality equipment, because our plate magnets are high-quality and affordable. Not to mention, since plate magnets offer a constant magnetic field, these magnets require little to no maintenance.

Depending on the Particle Size

Anyone working with magnetic separation should keep track of the particles they’re consistently finding. By keeping track of the particles, your findings should help you eradicate the problem that’s causing the contamination. In addition, you’ll also have a better idea if you’re working with small, medium, or large particles. If you’re experiencing large particles, you’ll need a full magnetic separation set up, and you can use plate magnets in addition to the rest of your equipment. On the other hand, if you’re working with small particles, plate magnets are an excellent way to attract smaller particles that you wouldn’t otherwise see.

You’re Still Finding Contamination

Of course, if you have a full magnetic separation set up and you’re still experiencing contamination in your products, plate magnets can act as an additional preventative measure. More often than not, adding plate magnets will take care of your contamination problem due to the additional magnets to pass by during the separation process.

Whatever your organization is experiencing, we can all agree that contamination is bad for business. In most cases, adding plate magnets into your set up will reduce the contamination—if not eradicate it altogether.
